    First time on the Intrepid, Dec. 10-20, 2019

    I disagree, The boat now rides rides like the smaller vessels in the fleet. It Rolls quite significantly. Like I said, “depending on who’s in the galley...”. Brain was not on the boat for my last two trips.

    First time on the Intrepid, Dec. 10-20, 2019

    It’s not the same as it used to be. Only one crew member who has been on the boat for multiple years, ride is not good since the stabilizers have been removed and depending on who is in the galley the food may or may not be that great. After 11 years, I have decided to move on.

    Poll - Small Accurates

    I have 2 BX2-500's, one for 40lb and one for 50lb. Both with 65lb solid spectra and a short section of JB hollow for knotless top shot connections. To answer your question: the shifting mechanism on these reels is great. No binding or difficulties shifting between high and low speed, super...

    Need lodge suggestions

    Check out False Island Lodge. It's located outside of Sitka, about 1.5 hours by boat. Because of their location they have the advantage of being able to fish on the inside if the weather is rough. This area is not within range of the rest of the Sitka fleet. We went in June and had great...

    Spangler Knot

    I used the spangler knot on several trips this season. No failures. Best two fish were a 75lb and an 80lb yft on 40 lb blackwater at Guadalupe. I like the knot. It's simple and easy to tie, but I have not fished it on any line over 80lb.

    Real Deal Fishing report!!!

    Reel Deal does a great job. I got the fish in my avatar fishing with them. In addition to having excellent boats/gear/knowledge, both Bobby and Elena are very nice people. If you are planning a trip to the cape, give them a try. You can't go wrong!

    Offshore Long Range 1.5 Day

    I think I am going to jump on with my son. Never fished the PQ. Only thing that concerns me is 33 guys on a 85' boat, but what the hell it's only a day and a half.

    Cape Cod BFT

    Yeah, a really nice "coffee grinder". Van Staal VS250B with a Van Staal rod 80lb hollow with a 90lb leader. A very nice, smooth set up and a little more fun and challenging than a 70W:)

    Cape Cod BFT

    Yeah, me too! I thought 45lb west coast blue fin(my largest bft before this) were tough to catch, but now I really know what a tough fish is.

    Cape Cod BFT

    Fished out of Pamet on 6/10 aboard the Reel Deal with Capt Bobby Rice and RonZ. For those of you who don't know, Ron makes a great swimming soft bait, and Bobby runs a exceptional 2 boat charter service. We caught this fish on a white RonZ 10" bait outside of Chatham. Tough fish, took 1 hour...
